The Fremont website shows at www.cityoffremont.net/City%20Council/mayor&council.htm a flag. This is the "U.S. 26 Star "Fremont"" flag. No word at the site about it, so it could be used as the city flag too.

At CNN.com today there is a story about a high school student being sworn in as mayor of Hillsdale, Michigan. There is a photo accompanying the story with a good depiction of the city flag. The flag is blue, with the city seal. Story at http://www.cnn.com/2005/POLITICS/11/22/teenmayor.ap/index.html. An image of the seal is at http://www.ci.hillsdale.mi.us/.
The Ionia City flag was located at http://city.ionia.mi.us/Web%20Site%20Project/WEBSITE%202.htm
(link now inactive). A photo of the flag flying below the national flag can be
found here. The flag appears to be the
city logo as shown at
http://www.ci.ionia.mi.us/ on a blue background.

Reported in the Mining Journal (27 March 2006):
"Each of the more than 60 seventh and eighth graders in Pam Jacobson’s art class are using their artistic abilities to create a design concept that the Negaunee City Council may select to use on its future city flag. The council in February created an ad hoc flag committee — chaired by Councilman Kimme Peterson and also comprised of councilmen Jim Thomas and Jim Wickstrom — to come up with a flag design to bring back to the council. Negaunee currently does not have a city flag, which will be used at various parades and ceremonies.Ivan Sache, 29 March 2006
The ad hoc committee, which could select one design or incorporate several of the students’ renderings to come up with an official flag design — gave the students guidelines to follow while creating their designs. The flag designs must include Negaunee’s city seal in the center, which includes an illustration of a pine tree stump that symbolizes when iron ore was first discovered in 1844 in the roots of the tree near what became the Jackson Mine. The flag must also include Negaunee’s school colors of maize and blue. The students have also been directed to include what they believe makes Negaunee important.
Depending on how soon the committee receives the students’ ideas, Peterson said the committee hopes to review the students’ renderings and come up with design options to present to the city council within the next few months."
Royal Oak has no flag apparently. From www.ci.royal-oak.mi.us/clerk/cc2000/031300cc.html, "A Regular Meeting of the Royal Oak City Commission was held on Monday, March 13, 2000 in City Hall....CITY FLAG
Mayor Cowan stated that to his knowledge they had not adopted a City Flag. He thought this might be an opportunity for people in the community to design an official flag. He thought everyone should be involved. Commissioner Lanfear asked what the City motto was. She was informed that it was "We live to serve." Commissioner Harrison asked what the four squares on the City seal represented. Mayor Cowan said they would have to research that."

Traverse City's flag seems to be blue logo on white as seen in the photo at www.traverse.com/traversecity/commission/commission9.jpg (no longer available).

The city of Traverse City logo can be seen here:
. The flag is white with the logo centered, and has the words Traverse City
under it. There is something in smaller print under City but I can't read it or
remember what it is.
